Money before values?

Okay, I could really care less about Mary Carey's political aspirations or her current line of work, but then I'm a Democrat. The GOP is the party of hardline values, and porn certainly violates many of those values that Republicans live for. So it is a little surprising that two prominent figures in the porn industry are attending a GOP fund raiser, or at least it is until you read the following quote:

"Carl Forti, a spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee, which is co-hosting the dinner, had no qualms about Carey and her boss, adult film executive Mark Kulkis, attending.
"Their money was donated to the NRCC. The NRCC's job is to elect Republicans. We'll take that money and use it to elect more Republicans," Forti said."

So I ask how can the GOP turn a blind eye? Is it purely the money? Doesn't this mean that these values that the GOP holds so dear are for sale?
